What's the talk about?

As long time skeptic when Heather got diagnosed with a chronic illness she was curious about what advice alt med practitioners would give her, so she went along to find out. Heather's talk is a personal story about living with a chronic illness and the real harm that alternative medicine can cause, both physically and mentally. Her talk goes through various therapies and how their advice could threaten her life if she took it up. From EFT to GNM Heather asks WTF are these people trying to sell to people.

eather has been a regular Skeptics in the Pub attendee for the last 5 years, first at Merseyside Skeptics and then after a move north, Edinburgh Skeptics. Despite being a humanities drop out she has always had a passion for science, facts and a morbid love of medical history.
